Rapper and clog dancing for CLIC Sargent

A Big Bucket Collection held at Newcastle Central Station involved traditional rapper and clog dancing teams showing off their skills at the same time as collecting to make the event truly special and help break previous records.

Rapper and clog dancing for CLIC Sargent

Ladies from the Addison Rapper and Clog Dance team were joined by the Two Step dance group who helped encourage passers-by to join in and give to the collection which raised over £300.

One Addison Rapper and Clog Dance team member, Kirsten Ellis is also a CLIC Sargent Social Worker based at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle.

This is the second Big Bucket Collection that Kirsten has been involved in during CLIC Sargent's 'Winter of Collections', and she was really impressed that the team raised such and incredible amount on the day in aid of children and young people with cancer.

The dance groups were also joined by Hannah Barugh and her merry band of 'bucketeers' from Gateshead Action Volunteers. The group have kindly supported CLIC Sargent in the past, including completing a mass mailing and manning a cheer point at the Great North Run.
